Support Local Projects & Save Local History

This is a proud moment for our Mt. Zion Cemetery Board as we’ve sustained 10 years of restoring a local cemetery, Mount Zion Cemetery, Festus, Missouri to a respectful state. What started out as my passion for genealogy has turned into nearly a decade of returning pride to our local community. I cannot thank the local supporters enough for their commitments to aid the cemetery’s well being.

I’ll post more on this cemetery & others as I go but with this blog post, I wish to leave you with one tip: Get involved with your passion & make history happen!
